What an awesome cultural experience! I hosted an event for Pitt Arts this past weekend with the @balmoralschool , a Scottish piping and drumming organization based in Pittsburgh. Before the show, we got to discuss traditional Scottish music with the head of the Scottish Nationality Room, and the members of the band @eabhalmusic , who we were there to see!
The event announced winners of a youth piping and drumming competition held earlier that day, and we even got to hear the competition winners perform!
Eabhal’s music was traditional Scottish and Celtic music with a modern twist. Their group boasted a natural chemistry that made them a joy to listen to and watch. Utilizing traditional instruments like the bagpipes and the accordion, their sound was so incredibly unique and refreshing. Not only that, but they are all really nice people as well! They have an album out, so definitely check it out!!
On December 8, there will be a Nationality Room open house in the Cathy Commons. Each room will host vendors and activities. Come to learn and enjoy some really unique cultures, and definitely visit the Scottish Room!
